I was very touched by Daniel's story and I have a lot of respect for his parents and their strength in trying to educate as many children and parents as possible in regards to child safety. Having 2 young boys of my own, I want them to grow up being confident, independent boys but I also want them to be aware of any dangers that can be presented in day to day life and know how to act if ever faced with such a situation.

I have been a supporter of the DMF since 2008. I am amazed at the work that both Bruce and Denise & the Foundation puts into educating our young children. It is important to me as a parent to see encouragement in our local schools to teach their students about the DMF & also about child safety & stranger danger awareness. I really enjoyed liaising with schools and their key people & the enthusiasm in regards to Day for Daniel.
